The collection, amplification, and genome sequencing of bacteriophage Bernadetta

Bacteriophage (phage) are a type of virus that use bacteria as a host to reproduce. This ability gives phage the potential for many applications in our world. This varies from uses in the medical field to crop protection. Being the most abundant microorganism in the world, phage present a unique opportunity for researchers everywhere.
